I was a 20 year old junior in college and had gotten pregnant on a Spring Break trip with my boyfriend. There was no way we could take care of a child at that point in our lives.

I knew I was pregnant just before my 21st birthday (which was about a month or so after spring break). I had an abortion the day before Mother’s Day. It was very early on in the pregnancy when I made the decision. I still maintain it was the right one for me. Fast forward 13 years. I ended up marrying the man who got me pregnant so long ago, actually we stayed together through it all, never once doubting our relationship or that decision, and now, at age 34, we’re eagerly expecting the arrival of our first child in a couple months!
